Xiaomi Redmi 8 has beautiful design with enough performance to use, but the interesting thing is that the machine also has a “soft spot price”.

With the magical turquoise color, Xiaomi Redmi 8 impressed me at first sight. You will see the blue color of the device is constantly changing when changing the angle of view and with each different tilt of the machine.

At the front, the Xiaomi Redmi 8 is equipped with an IPS LCD screen, measuring 6.22 inches and HD + resolution. At a glance, this screen displays quite sharp images, providing brightness and good viewing angles. It is also protected by Gorilla Glass 5, and the interesting thing is that the Xiaomi Redmi 8 is also equipped with P2i waterproof nano coating.

The size of the hand, the back is curved on both sides with soft plastic material is the next plus point for Xiaomi Redmi 8. I myself have experienced Xiaomi Redmi 8 for a while, I feel that, holding Grasping and using the machine very comfortably.

Xiaomi Redmi 8 is also equipped with a dual camera system at the back, including a 12MP main sensor and a 2MP camera for depth measurement when taking portraits. On the front, the device has an 8MP selfie camera for users to take selfies and video calls.

Xiaomi has equipped the Xiaomi Redmi 8 with 64-bit Snapdragon 439 octa-core processor, with the graphics chip is Adreno 505. This is the processor for low-cost products so I do not feel strange when appearing on Xiaomi Redmi 8

Xiaomi Redmi 8 also comes with a very large battery, with a capacity of 5,000 mAh. Xiaomi Redmi 8 also supports Quick Charge 3.0, allowing you to charge the device up to 65% in just one hour using the 18W charger. However included in the box is only a standard 10W charger. On the software front, the device runs on Android 9 Pie operating system with.

Owning many advantages but with a “soft” price, Redmi 8 has caused special attention from domestic and foreign consumers. For me, the 3 million dong for Redmi 8 is a completely worthy price, because it can meet the needs of work, study and entertainment.
